On the Dell machines that are deployed in the libraries, the front USB ports don't emit as much power as those ports in the back. The back ports (because of their proximity to the power supply) provide more juice to power USB devices plugged into the back USB ports.
Also, the monitors connected to the public kiosks do not have a USB cable connecting back to the desktop computer. Therefore the USB ports in the monitor do not work.
Try plugging the flash drive into a USB port on the back of the machine. This should fix your problem.

I am not affiliated with Stanford, but I would like to access your electronic resources. Can you give me the password or tell me how to access it? Can I purchase access privileges?
If you do not have a SuNet ID (if you are not a currently registered student, staff, or faculty) you cannot get remote access to any database or e-resource licensed to the Stanford Campus. That's limited to people with current SUNet IDs. You can use selective electronic resources by visiting the library.

Question: I have always been able to access digital material from the Stanford Library site, like databases, ejournals, and online reference material. Now I can't. I am prompted for a login and password and it's not accepting my Stanford SuNet ID. Why can't I access electronic material anymore with my SuNet ID?
If you have graduated, or have changed your affiliation with Stanford, your SuNet ID may no longer be valid. To test whether or not you're supposed to have access, use this AUTHENTICATION TEST.
If you're not authorized and you have questions follow the link you'll see to the page that explains our access policies. It has information about getting in touch with Privileges.
If you are authorized, follow the link you'll see to the instructions for remote access to electronic resources.

How can I find textbooks and/or books on reserve for my class?
The Libraries generally don't have many textbooks in our collection, except those put on Reserves by your instructor. We are not able to borrow textbooks from other libraries for you, either.

On the cluster machines, I can log into the Windows operating system, but not the Mac operating system. Why is this?
If you are a visiting scholar you may not have a full-service SUNet account. The MacOS requires the user to have a full-service SUNet account, which gives them web (or AFS) space and most visiting scholars don't have this access. See this page for more information about SUNet IDs.
